The Guardian:A woman caught on camera driving on a pavement to avoid a Cleveland school bus unloading children will have to stand at a crossroads wearing a sign describing herself as an idiot.
A Cleveland municipal court judge on Monday ordered 32-year-old Shena Hardin to stand at the crossroads on two days next week. She will have to wear a sign that reads: “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”
The judge ordered her to wear the sign from 7.45am to 8.45am on both days. Hardin’s licence was suspended for 30 days and she was ordered to pay $250 (£156) in court costs. The driver of the school bus, Uriah Herron, filmed Hardin driving on the pavement, a detour she is thought to have made every day. His manager, Eric Taylor, said: “We had a very conscientious driver for 30 years. He really cares about his children and he took the extra step [to ensure] that this doesn’t happen again.”
